Change Date: 9 FEB 2006
He was also referred to as Kauhola.
He was King of Hawaii.
He "followed his father as Moi or sovereign of Hawaii. No mention occurs in the traditions of any wars between Hawaii and Maui during this and the preceding reign, nor of any conquests made; yet the tradition is positive , and has not been contradicted, that Kauholanuimahu resided a great portion of his time at Honuaula, Maui, where he exercised royal authority, and, among, other useful works, built the fishpond at ?Keoneoio,? which still remains. During one of his long sejours on Maui, his wife Neula remained on Hawaii and took another husband, whose name has not survived in Hawaiian legend. The new husgand and rival revolted from Kauholanui and assumed the government of Hawaii. Informed of the treachery and the revolt, Kauholanui hastened back to Hawaii, suppressed the rebellion, and slew his opponent. After that, Kauholanui remained on Hawaii until his death. Kauholanui?s wife, Neula, is said in some traditions to have been a Maui chiefess; if so, the district of Honuaula may have been her patrimonial estate, and that may account for the frequent and protracted residences ther by Kauholanui."
"On the death of Kahoukapu, the kingdom passed into the hands of Kauholanuimahu. After reigning for a few years, Kauholanuimahu sailed over to Maui and made his residence at Honua-ula. He it was that constructed that fishpond at Keoneoio.
11. The wife of Kauholanuimahu remained on Hawaii and took to herself another husband; his kingdom also revolted from him but Kauholanuimahu returned to Hawaii and recovered it by war."
Malo states "Kauhola took to wife Neulaokiha and Waiolea and begot Liloa".
